Charged with DUI and Harassment, but nothing written on citation?
I was in a motor-vehicle accident. But, never breathalyzed or arrested. Also, my fiancé claims I hit her, but never did. I was air-lifted to a hospital due to subdural hematoma. Nothing was written on my citations. Can this be a loophole? I have already retained an attorney.
Your best option right now is to ask your attorney any questions you have as they are most familiar with your case....
First time DUII?
Hi, I got a DUII for the first time. My fiancé stabbed me whilst drunk. I got into my car in an attempt to get to the hospital and wrecked. I was panicking and drove too fast. I subsequently hit a truck. I was not breathalyzed or arrested. I was air-lifted to a hospital for a brain bleed, which she caused by smashing a glass into my head. I live in Oregon, and am very scared. I have a very good job, and am terrified of losing it. I intend to fully cooperate with the courts, and want to pay my fines and put this behind me. The DUI paperwork was not filled out properly by LE. I do have an attorney retained. What can I expect to face?
First I would talk to your retained attorney asap. There are various outcomes. One of which involves your fiancé...

My boyfriend got an MIP two weekends ago for alcohol, what can we do in court without a lawyer?
I'm 18, he's 19. We were drinking at my house with my roommate and her boyfriend. Landlord called the cops. We were all sleeping when cops arrived. My roommate woke me up and the cop asked if i had been drinking. I said yes, he tested my eyes by moving his finger. Said he couldn't prove i had been drinking even though i admitted to. Her boyfriend got my boyfriend out of my room. He denied he was drinking but then failed the eye test. There was beer bottles on the table, but he let me and my roommate, who also passed the test, off with a warning, even though the alcohol was in our house. My boyfriend has court on the 11th. What can he (or I do for him) to get in the least amount of trouble. He really is a good guy, it's unfortunate he was the only one to get an MIP. We really need help

Is there a time period in Oregon state that the breath test has to be given to you after the arrest?
The citation says that I was arrested at 1:49am and the between 2:20am and 2:30am.

If you are arrested do they have to offer you an attorney
I was arrested for a DUII in Oregon. I don't remember them reading my rights or offering me an attorney. On the implied consent combined report it does state if requested, you were given a reasonable opportunity to contact counsel or others. But I thought they had to offer you one.
Unfortunately no. The seminal case is State v Moore, that says the onus is on the arrestee to ask to communicate ("Can...
I received my ordered background check/arrest record and it does not show my DUI arrest from 1997.
Can I say I have no criminal arrests on a job application? Why would my DUI which I did diversion not be on this record?
If you successfully completed a diversion program, then you were not considered to have been convicted of DUII. That's...
